    Re: Aurender N10 - Stereophile A+ Recommended Component

    Bill.......The Aurender Conductor app also allows Tidal albums to be integrated into the complete library if you choose. It allows selections to be shown as Tidal Favorites and/or album selections in the complete Conductor music library.

    I am not trying to promote the Conductor app over the Roon app or vice versa. The Conductor app is dedicated to full control of the Aurender music servers and is not commercially available by subscription like Roon. You must own an Aurender music server in order to use the Conductor app. There are certainly plenty of Roon aficionados willing to use and pay for that application and the necessary hardware to effectively use that product, but by no means is the acceptance of Roon universal. As for me, the Aurender Conductor app provides all the functionality I desire to fully control my N10 and N100H music servers and interface with my music library to my complete satisfaction. That's all that matters to me. Like you said, to each their own.

I just performed the task from Tidal on my office computer and from Tidal in the Aurender N10's Conductor App. Each album I selected in both directions now appears on Tidal and in the Aurender Conductor App. Another recent Conductor app update allows dedicated search under the Masters tab for MQA encoded albums.
    Thank you for the explanation!

    I was tempted by the W20, but I discovered that... the 2 AES connectors of my DAC do not support dual mode AES/EBU. And also my DAC does not have Clock input.


    So, I wonder if, without use of the dual mode AES/EBU and the Clock input, will the W20 still offer an advantage over the N10, or if, with my DAC configuration, will the N10 will sound as good as the W20 ?


    The N10 is indeed much more recent than the W20 that is quite aging now...

    I am myself NOT a ROON fan, and therefore ready to accept that the Conductor app is a very vialable alternative. The ONLY MISSING FEATURE for me compared to ROON (and Deezer), is the ability to READ THE LYRICS of the songs played. If this was implemented in the Conductor app, then I will be 100% sold to Aurender.

    bmichels.......A Google search will generally produce the lyrics to nearly any song you may be interested in reading.

    Agrée, but it is more convenient to have lyrics inside your player. Deezer even scroll the text to follow the singing, like.. karaoke ;-)

    I Wonder if getting a used W20 instead of a N10 still make sense with a DAC that do NOT has Dual AES/EBU and NO Clock Input.
